Excuse me if I don’t believe Oscar Pistorius will be back

It’s important the parade continues – but safely

Have your say

So Oscar Pistorius is considering going to the World Championships in Russia, his agent has said.

Excuse me while I don’t rush to believe him.

While the South African athlete’s trial for murder has been hanging over him, he’s pretty much been under house arrest.

Certainly he hasn’t been training which, though unsurprising, is for a top athlete as alien as a lion turning vegetarian.

Pistorius has had his bail conditions lifted so he’s allowed to travel and make a living by competing.

But I suspect that despite what his agent says, and despite the organisers saying he’d be allowed in on the innocent until proven guilty rule, he won’t be making a return to the track for a very long time, whatever happens.
